Hi Bob,

It has been brought to my attention that reserving the S_ID field
in the REC payload because it is redundant to the S_ID of the
frame header is not always correct.

It is my understanding that the S_ID field in the payload is the
ID of the "Exchange originator". Thus if the Target sends a REC
while waiting for a confirm, the frame header S_ID and the payload
S_ID would be different.

I would suggest that the field remain as currently defined.
